Romney Wins Texas, GOP Nomination

Mitt Romney scored a big win in the Texas primary Tuesday night, officially locking down the Republican nomination. The candidate's nomination will be certified at the GOP national convention in August. Before the Texas primary, he had 1,086 convention delegates, but with the win Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates required to get the nomination. His win was not unexpected, since he was the only major candidate still campaigning there. Romney’s political director said, “That goal is accomplished, but there’s a much bigger goal to be accomplished and that’s winning the presidency.”
